GOLD

 

BLUE BLOOD IS LAUGHING AT BLUE COLLAR’S SHARE

WHILE RED BLOOD IS SPLASHING ON REDS IN THE SQUARE

THERE’S BLACK CLOUDS ON BLACK’S PROUDEST DAYS IN THE SUN

AND WHITE THINKS THAT ‘MIGHT’ MIGHT BE RIGHTEOUS

AND WARS CAN BE WON…

 

“BORN FREE” AND “COLOR BLIND”

IS THE GREATEST LIE THE DEVIL EVER TOLD

WHAT’S YOURS IS YOURS AND YOURS IS MINE

WE CLOSE OUR EYES, BUT ALL WE SEE IS –

 

GOLD OF THE PHAROHS AND CROWNS OF THE KINGS

IN BABYLON TOWERS AND BLESSED PAPAL RINGS

THEY STRIP-MINE THEIR RICHES FROM BACKS OF THE POOR

WHO DIE IN THE DITCHES AND STILL

THE MASSES WANT MORE…

 

“BORN FREE” AND “COLOR BLIND”

IS THE GREATEST LIE THE DEVIL EVER TOLD

WHAT’S YOURS IS YOURS AND YOURS IS MINE

WE CLOSE OUR EYES, BUT ALL WE SEE IS GOLD

 

“ALL’S FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR”

IS THE BIGGEST SCORE THE DEVIL EVER STOLE

WHAT’S YOURS IS YOURS AND YOURS IS MINE

WE READ THE SIGNS, BUT ALL WE SEE IS GOLD
